BASHOBASHO means “place” in Japanese. This work, started in the 1977 and finished by 1979 represented my first one person exhibition ofphotographs in 1978 after a painting solo show in 1977 at the Inland Empire Gallery at U.C. Riverside in Riverside, California. All of BASHOwas printed approximately 6 x 9 inches and displayed raw, mounted like cards against a wall. The sequence of the works is long forgotten.This book recreates the exhibition how best I can remember with a few 1979 works that were not available at the time. Influenced by LewisBaltz and Ralph Gibson, the work was reductive in nature; I always used a tripod and the smallest possible aperture with the mirror locked upon my SRT Minolta camera. All work was printed the same without burning and dodging, using Kodak Plus-X, Agfa Brovira grade five paper.The work represents my efforts to bring my Zen Buddhist training to bear in creating photographs.Lewis deSoto 2004

The dotted line, the dashed line, and the solid line correspond to the setups with 5, 10,and 15 items per basket, respectively. All curves are (slightly) increasing, i.e., “non-connectedness”happens more often with an increasing number of baskets. Furthermore, the more items per basket,the higher the likelihood for having a non-connected adjacency graph.Table 5 provides more details about the character of the clusters. Among those instances with nonconnectedadjacency graphs, two clusters appear more often than three clusters. However, withincreasing number of items per basket three clusters are getting more likely. Interestingly, we nevergenerated an example where the maximum distance between clusters of instances with two clustersis greater than 2. The maximum (pairwise) distance between three clusters, however, happened tobe as much as 8.Setup of test instances 20/5/10 20/10/10 20/15/10Instances with one cluster 199882 99705 19889Instances with two clusters 115 282 100Instances with three clusters 3 13 11Maximal distance between two clusters 2 2 2Maximal distance between three clusters 3 4 8Table 5: Number of connected components (clusters) in the adjacency graph and maximum distancebetween two components for the biobjective binary multiple choice knapsack problem23
